Welcome to a beautiful week of DC wedding inspiration. We are kicking right off with a classic DC Persian wedding ceremony and reception! Atena and Ben were married last year at the iconic DC wedding venue full of beautiful architecture and a gorgeous portico perfect for ceremonies and dancing the night away. Hands down Daughters of the American Revolutions is one of our favorite more intimate DC wedding venues. The O’Byrne Gallery comfortably fits about 120 guests; most couples opt for ceremonies on the terrace and cocktails in the historically based library inside!
Surrounded by friends and family, the couple hosted their Persian wedding ceremony outfitted with a gorgeous Sofreh Aghd under the blooming trees and perfect weather. This cultural ceremony structure holds many symbolic items. They include things such as ornate eggs to promote fertility within the couples new union, coins/gold to symbolize wealth and prosperity, and the wedding cloth. One by one the happily married female members of the couple’s come up and rub sugar loafs together over them. The sugar falling onto this Persian wedding cloth symbolizes a sprinkling of sweetness falling onto the couple and their future together. We love how each item has a special meaning and moment within the ceremony promoting positivity for the newlyweds.
Following the ceremony, guests were welcomed inside to faint blue and white florals. They really made quite a statement against the venues classic architecture! We really love the blue piping on their Fluffy Thoughts wedding cake! Thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for sharing their wedding with us today!
